American Idol's Jessica Sanchez Glad Phillip Phillips Won

Jessica Sanchez makes an appearance on Extra at The Grove on Thursday (May 24) in Los Angeles.

The 16-year-old American Idol runner-up chatted with host Mario Lopez about her journey on the show.

After coming in second place on the show’s eleventh season, Jessica sat down with Rolling Stone and told the mag she was not surprised her opponent Phillip Phillips won the competition.

“Not at all – he has such a big fanbase. We both do. We both thank our fans so much. But he’s a real “artist” artist. He always sounds like him. He sang so many different songs and always sounded like himself. I’m so proud of him, and I’m glad it was him,” Jessica said.
